Yesterday we joined Leon and Emma for their wedding at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel in Dorset, just miles from Bournemouth, this sunny waterfront haven is an idyllic location for a wedding, with uninterrupted panoramic views over the harbour, very few wedding venues can match the passion and beauty of this incredible setting and Leon and Emma choose the most amazing June day to get married. We were recommended to Leon and Emma by Andy and Issy who you might remember from their Frisbee throwing wedding at Northbrook park a year ago we were recommended to Andy and Issy by Gary and Karen who’s wedding we shot 5 years ago, its a wonderful job we have and all along the way we make the most amazing friends and the best part is, with each wedding it starts all over again.
We started our day with Emma at home for an hour capturing a few lovely preparation shots and getting to know her parents and brother before we headed off to the Christchurch Harbour hotel to meet Leon and his best man for a couple of chilled shots pre ceremony, Emma soon arrived in a beautiful Range Rover which suited the Christchurch Harbour hotel so well and walked into a silenced room in her absolutely stunning wedding dress, Leon later mentioned that he was speechless when he saw Emma for the first time today.
After a relaxed ceremony we were ushered out onto the terrace levels in what was perfect sunshine for a couple of hours of very chilled photos, we took a few family photos as well as key members and then took Leon and Emma off for a nice walk and soon enough we were being called into dinner but before anyone could enjoy their wedding breakfast we had the 3 speeches which were all entertaining, Emma’s Dads was very moving, Leon’s was great and the Best man is a Police officer so enough said 3 great speeches.
After dinner Sue and I setup our Funtime Foto booth which is our take on a wedding photo booth ready for a fun evening, little did we realise just how much fun we were in for ! although there were only 60 or so guests we had the most amazing evening and shot long into the night, people were coming back again and again and I think its fair to say that Funtime Fotos was a 100% HIT
In-between Funtimefotos we shot the first dance which finished the formalities for the day, back to funtime for an hour or so then Sue and I left exhausted but very very happy.
Thanks to Andy and Issy for your continued support and thank you to everybody for making me laugh so much that I had tears running down my face at times.
